Bobby Smith, singer songwriter and self taught pianist , was influenced in his early life by the sounds of Jerry lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart and Mickey Gilley. Bobby was sitting in church one evening and a visiting piano player named Jack Harris , dropped by. When he graced the old upright piano , it came to life with his gospel rhythm and blues style. Bobby was moved so much, he asked God to give him the gift of playing piano. Soon Bobby was teaching himself to play piano. When I grew up says Bobby , the pastors thought I was playing rock and roll and usually asked him to leave. Bobby took a short detour and formed a band and started playing night clubs for a short stint , but felt the call to get back to gospel music. Bobby writes songs that he believes is relevant to the times we live in such as "If We Ever Need Revival We Sure Do Need It Today" He also takes scripture and puts music to it or dramatizes it. For example his Single "Song Of Solomon" is so dramatic you can actually feel the romance King Solomon had for his beloved. Over the years his style has developed into gospel rhythm and blues to contemporary Christian or other styles as well. His Single "Thoughts From The Garden" is as though you are actually in the garden with Christ. Bobby's desire is for his songs to touch peoples lives in a positive way !
